[ laughter ] >> reporter: governor brown talking like he will support this bill. he appeared open to legislation that does away with all exemptions except the medical ones. >> 19 other states allow parents to refuse vaccinations on personal beliefs. 48 states have a separate religious exemption. and to check to see how many children are not vaccinated at your child's school, go to

berkeley tonight. or more like a sign stuck in time. christin ayers on why the state won't let one movie theater change its marquee. >> reporter: this movie theater has been here in berkeley for a century. its owners say for years, workers have manually changed the movie titles on the marquee until now. look closely. you might not notice it at first, but there is something wrong on the elmwood's movie marquee. most of the movies advertised are no longer in theaters. turns out, no one has changed the marquee since december. all because of a safety issue. a cal osha worker noticed a worker changing the sign and they got a letter alleging a safety violation because the worker was over seven-and-a- half feet off the ground without fall protection. >> you know if someone slipped and hit their head, that would be super unfortunate.
>> sounds like a valid safety precaution. >> reporter: the theater said they are working on a solution. >> i appreciate the concern. um ... but it seem like the answer wouldn't be overly complicated. >> reporter: no word on how soon they will fix the problem. the theater, one of the first to play the interview in december couldn't even advertise that on their marquee. patrons say it is okay. current or not, the marquee is really the main attraction anyway. >> though this may be 90, 100 years old, it is a wonderful design in a retro format. so i love it. >> reporter: in berkeley, christin ayers, kpix5. >> they plan to bring in a bucket truck to remove the movie titles and put a generic movie slogan. men and area dressed in fatigues raising money for veterans. only on kpix5 tonight, what we discovered when we started asking questions. >> the pilot yelled may day. then this happened.
>> well tonight, we know the pilot of that plane that crashed in taiwan put out a may day call. at least 31 people on the flight are dead. a dozen more are still missing. but, there are also remarkable stories of survival. a driver caught the moment on camera when the transasia flight came barreling out of the sky toward a taipei
freeway. the passenger plane clipped the side of a taxi and it appears only one of the propellers is spinning as the jet hits the edge of the bridge and summer assaults into the river below. unbelievably, some passengers survived clinging to the side of the fuselage. this two-year-old boy was pulled from the wreckage with barely a scratch. rescuers carried him out of the water to safety. the plane was only two minutes into the flight before a distress call came. the passenger plane barely missed buildings before hitting that taxi. remarkably, those inside the cab also survived. late today, the plane was hoisted out of the shallow river. this was the second fatal crash for the airline in less than seven months. in july, the same type of aircraft crashed killing 48 people as it tried to land in

up, no one answers the phone here and people across the hall never see anyone around. the ceo spends most of his time at an office in richmond where he runs at charity. >> reporter: how many veterans have you helped? >> about 45. >> reporter: over how many years? >> about three years. >> reporter: he told us his charity provides food, clothings, and referrals. >> what we do is find out in the area who is doing what. and then we actually send them to those resources. >> reporter: actually, physically driving them there? >> no, we don't drive. no. we don't drive there. we just point them to that organization. >> reporter: he told us he is not taking in nearly as much money as people think. >> yesterday, $28 between three people. >> reporter: your 2011 irs filing says your annual revenue is $296,000 for the national paradigm foundation.
>> you men the suggested revenue? >> reporter: correct. >> that is not our revenue. >> reporter: how did you fall so short? >> we thought that we would start getting grants. the grants didn't pan out. >> reporter: neither did the charity's paperwork with the states. after three years of warning letters that appropriate tax forms have not been filed, the national paradigm's foundation status is delinquent. >> reporter: according to the letter you are now suspended. >> now suspended? >> reporter: yes. >> i need to talk to my cpa. >> reporter: we showed our video to michael blecker, a veteran who has been running a nonprofit for 40 years. >> they have the american flag, the symbols and they are hurting. it makes people feel like
everybody is ripping them off. >> reporter: people are skeptical. they see your guys out there, how can you guarantee that their money is going to a legitimate cause? what evidence do you have? >> what evidence do i have? um ... i really don't have any evidence. >> reporter: hancock later told us the state made a mistake. he has filed and he produced a document. well, we checked with the state. they say they never got it. by the way, he also told us, he is an excon who went to prison for cocaine sales several years ago and that makes him better relate to the clientele he is serving and the experience makes him more compassionate. >> huh. well, you know, there are a lot of reputable veteran organizations out there that do a lot of good work. sounds like the best way to discipher which one is bet sore do what you did. >> reporter: ask questions.
that is what we did. we spoke to the solicitors and that is how we found out the answer. this is not legit. >> all right. thanks betty. all right, would you be willing to pay an extra dollar a week to fix our rugs? well, we may be the high-tech capital of the world, but we have plenty of low tech potholes out there. tonight, the assembly speaker wants to fix crumbling roads, bridges, freeways. she wants california drivers to pay an extra $52 a year for that. the proposed fee could be tacked onto insurance plans and car registrations. lots of people are weighing in on our kpix5 facebook page. tonight, with a resounding no. some say that is what the gas tax is for. steven from san leandro says why don't we take it from the bloated salaries and padded expense accounts of the politicians? well tonight, we learned a pit
